Learning Management Systems and Why They Top My 2015 Predictions
In December of 2014, my list of 2015 predictions was topped by the following statement: “Training management finally has its day.” It’s now March, and time to clarify something very important about that statement. The software vendors themselves need to move the first chess piece. That realization came to me at a celebration of Holi, the spring festival of colors and love.
First, let’s back up. My prediction that Learning Management would finally have its day was based on 3 simple premises:
- The way people learn has evolved to the point where it doesn’t align with traditional teaching methods and tools
- The employer had not sufficiently invested in training its workforce in the past decade, resulting in a knowledge gap
- The need for a talented and capable workforce is as imperative as ever as companies struggle to gain a competitive advantage
